A Texas-size Beer Event

T.G.I. Tuesday, Pint Jockeys!

Via GalvestonOktoberfest.com

We’re only two days into the week but the promise of this weekend’s big event has us chugging through. We can’t believe it’s that time of year again, but the Galveston Island Oktoberfest is BACK! The event kicks off Friday, October 26 and lasts through Saturday the 27th at First Lutheran Church.

Offering live entertainment, Wurst Abendessen, kids’ activities, the annual German Kuchen (cake) bake off and, of course, lots of beer, it’s no wonder the two-day festival welcomes over 15,000 people each year.

We hear the libation lineup includes German selections from Hofbräuhaus, Paulaner and Beck’s. Stateside brews, including Saint Arnold, ZiegenBock, Bud Light, Budweiser and Shock Top, will also be available.

Because we know you’re there to have a good time, we’ve partnered with Yellow Cab Galveston to bring you an awesome new free app, HAIL A CAB™. The app allows you to literally hail a cab with the push of a button. And here’s the coolest part – using GPS, your phone will automatically let the driver know where you are (even if you don’t know) AND you can track how long it will be before your cab arrives.

If you don’t have a smartphone (or, like some of us, don’t know how to use one), you can also hail a cab the old fashioned way at the on-site taxi station. No matter how you hail one, Yellow Cabs will be readily available throughout the weekend for you and your friends to use to get home safely.

Please drink responsibly and ‘til Friday, cheers Pint Jockeys!

More about Paulaner Pilsner and Oktoberfest Beer!

Hello beer fans! Hope everyone is having a good week so far!
As many of you already know, this Saturday is the big Galveston Island Oktoberfest Celebration, so we thought we’d do something special to get everyone ready. For the next four days, we’re going to highlight different brews guests can expect to find at the festival. Kicking things off are the Paulaner selections, which will have their own themed Bier Garten for all to enjoy!

Known for its historic roots in Munich,Germany, Paulaner has been producing beer for 375 years!  In 1634 the order of the Paulaner monks began brewing beer in the Au, thereby laying the foundation stone for the modern Paulaner brewery. Today, the brand produces 2.1 million hectolitres of beer, which is exported to about 70 different countries! With so many years of experience, it’s no wonder this has become one of the most loved brews in Germany and abroad.

Now, if you follow our Foodie Friday column, you may already know about Paulaner’s Oktoberfest bier as it was included in last week’s Oktoberfest Chili Recipe, but something this good is always worth repeating. Paulaner Oktoberfest Märzen has a clear amber color, malty taste with hints of toffee, and zesty yet bitter finish. This brew is sure to make you feel like you’re celebrating Oktoberfest in one of the big trademark tents  in Germany.

In addition, Paulaner will offer its Premium Pils extra dry selection. This ale is brewed in strict accordance with the traditional Pilsner method using only hops from the Hallertau region of Bavaria! The results are a distinctive, harmonic taste of hops combined with the delicate bitter Pils aroma.

 Both options are delicious! Which do you plan to try on Saturday?
